Packed our bags for 1 year away from home

We packed our bags and are ready to go, well I actually packed our bags twice, since I forgot to take pictures of what we packed inside the first time.

Tears and sobs later after dropping off our dogs Stella and Corona at my mom’s, we were off to the airport.  We were on a red eye that was supposed to leave Sacramento for Houston at 12:30 am.  We boarded, took some video and were ready to GO!

San Pedro here we come... Or Not...

“Sorry folks, we are going to have to deplane and take the plane across the terminal.” An hour and a new plane later we were really off!  Three hours and thirty minutes later, we were in Houston, and hour and a breakfast sandwich later, we were Belize bound!

We touch down in Belize at 11:15 am and feel that Caribbean air all around us, and it is THICK. I instantly begin sweating bullets, and I sweat more than the average human.  Dripping sweat everywhere we are finally ushered inside and on lookers ask me if it’s hot outside.  No I didn’t give them the finger.

We procced through customs, grab a cab for $20 USD (which is best/cheaper to just walk outside the airport vs letting the people inside “help”) and set off to the ferry.

At the ferry we drop off our checked bags for storage, buy our tickets ($35 USD per ticket round trip) and go get some grub.  As people are loading up I mention I have to go to the bathroom, so I run!  Trying to rip off my pants and then putting them back on while they are sticking to me was no small feat, but I did my business and we were off to San Pedro!

Getting the worst seats because of my late bathroom stop I burned in the sun but got to enjoy the wind in my hair and some nice views in the 90-minute boat ride to San Pedro.

Our Path to Financial Freedom

Right out of college in July of 2010 I began earning more money than I ever had before with an annual salary of $47,000. While many newly graduated college kids moved downtown or to midtown where it was more fun, lively, and hip we choice to live 15 to 20 minutes out of the hustle and bustle in good ole’ Rancho Cordova. We lived in a 740 square feet one bedroom apartment (~69 sq meters) for a measly $640 dollars a month (including utilities).

Off the boat we come with Bright and Sunny sky's ahead

Right off the boat we negotiate a $350 USD deal for a golf cart for two weeks.  Now sweating balls vs bullets, my patience wears as I give Johnny the “if we don’t get out of here soon I might kill you stare.”  We find out that we can walk a mile and a half through town to our place, so we jump in a cab ($5 USD) and 15 minutes later we are at the Grand Bayman Gardens Resort .  PHEW we made it!
